Spinal cord injury results not only in motor and sensory deficits but also in autonomic dysfunctions as a result of the disruption between higher brain centers and the spinal cord. Autonomic dysfunction can include compromised cardiovascular, respiratory, urinary, gastrointestinal, thermoregulatory, and sexual activities. Maintaining optimal health and well-being after sustaining a spinal cord. Autonomic dysreflexia (AD), also previously known as mass reflex, is a potential medical emergency classically characterized by uncontrolled hypertension and bradycardia, although tachycardia is known to commonly occur. AD occurs most often in individuals with spinal cord injuries with lesions at or above the T6 spinal cord level, although it has been reported in patients with lesions as low Specialty: Neurology. Introduction. A pproximately million people worldwide are living with the devastating consequences of spinal cord injury (SCI). 1,2 In addition to well-known motor and sensory consequences of SCI, descending spinal autonomic pathways can also be affected, leading to profound autonomic dysfunction. 3–5 Although the autonomic consequences of SCI are widespread, key areas of Cited by: 8.

Autonomic dysfunction following spinal cord injury, which includes autonomic dysreflexia, orthostatic hypotension, body temperature dysregulation, bladder dysfunction, and bowel dysfunction, strongly influences the quality of life in spinal cord injury by: 1.

If normal autonomic control is disrupted, the local sign of the reflexes is lost and mass reflexes appear. Spinal cord injury impairs autonomic nervous system, motor function, and sensory function.

A dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system is associated with clinical findings of autonomic dysreflexia such as severe hypertension and headache.

The autonomic nervous system (ANS) plays a key role in regulation of many physiologic of SCI on autonomic control cannot be overstated because supraspinal control of many bodily systems and organs is partially or completely lost following an injury to the spinal cord.

Although autonomic dysfunctions are well recognized Cited by: Injury at or above the sixth thoracic spinal cord segment segregates critical spinal sympathetic neurons from supraspinal modulation which can result in a syndrome known as autonomic dysreflexia (AD). Abstract.

Autonomic dysreflexia is a unique manifestation in people with spinal cord injury at T6 or above neurological level of injury. Episodes of autonomic dysreflexia are characterized by an acute increase in systolic blood pressure of at least 20 mmHg in individuals of spinal cord injury at or above T6 spinal cord and may or may not be accompanied by a decrease in heart beat.

Autonomic dysreflexia is a medical emergency occurring after spinal cord injury caused by disruption of the normal autonomic responses to a stimulus below the level of spinal cord lesion. Although it can lead to stroke, convulsions, cardiac arrest and death, health professionals are largely ignorant of the condition and it is frequently.

Spinal cord injury (SCI) is characterised by profound respiratory compromise secondary to the level of loss of motor, sensory and autonomic control associated with the injury. This review aims to detail these anatomical and physiological changes after SCI, and outline their impact on respiratory function.
